As Christmas quickly approaches, we all have a similar thought. We want to get wonderful gifts for our family and friends. Instead of a practical gift, give a more meaningful one this year. That’s why 23andMe makes the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list.
I think the DNA Ancestry Kit is a really cool gift idea and an awesome gift to give someone the chance to understand what makes them who they are. For the longest time, I never questioned who I fully was until a couple years ago when I had a memorable discussion with my dad. You see, both of my parents were born and raised in Nigeria before immigrating to the United States. My father grew up without his biological mom. She passed away when he was very young and he knows little of her. One thing he does know is that she wasn’t 100% Nigerian. So it made me wonder about my own family’s ancestry.
With 23andMe, you have the power to share your genetic information with your family to get a better understanding of who you are and where you come from thus bringing you closer to the ones you love.
They have two kits – Ancestry & Health + Ancestry Kits. This is how their service works, “We analyze, compile, and distill the information extracted from your DNA into 75+ reports you can access online and share with family and friends.” -23andMe.
When you gift a 23andMe kit to a loved one, the process is simple:
- Register your kit
- Fill the tube up to the fill line with your saliva
- Then mail the sample back to their lab in the prepaid package
In 6-8 weeks, they’ll send you an email to let you know your reports are ready in your online account. You’ll finally see who you are!
